Numbers don't lie. Helping clients give their pets happier, more fulfilled, more enriched lives is on your mind—nearly 100 percent of you in a recent survey said that increasing the level of enrichment for pets is interesting to you and could help pets' overall health.
Yet only 74 percent of you discuss the topic with clients, and only 25 percent of you sell pet enrichment products in your veterinary hospital or online.
Well, colleagues of yours who do recommend and sell pet enrichment products have shared a list of some of their absolute favorites. These are the ones they called out by name in their responses.
Check them out, try them out with your pets or patients, and find out if you can help close the gap between the importance of pet enrichment and how much time it gets in your busy veterinary hospital. I mean, who made that teenager at the local pet store the expert on what pets need to be less stressed and more active, and have more fun at home?
